Through the "fit for the future" initiative we are seeking to understand the experiences of people with moderate mental health needs and the primary care and community services that provide support to this group. We spoke with 22 people of varied background and experiences, both in Tamaki and across Auckland, focussing on Māori, Pacific and youth populations.
We learnt that there are some key principles that can help to guide providers of support to develop positive experiences for people accessing their services. We are using these principles of practice to prototype new services and experiences of support across Auckland. In next week's blog we will talk more about how we are prototyping.
